Bears on the prowl in Cache Creek

Writer wants everyone to know that there are bears wandering Cache Creek, looking for food.

Dear Editor

Last night, Wednesday, Sept. 11, about 10:15 pm, Les was opening the curtains so the house plants would get morning light, when he saw a 2-3 year old bear walking up Winchester Rd. heading north. We watched as it got to the house at the end of Winchester Rd. and Collins Rd., at the corner on Winchester, sniffing the air as it walked.

It stopped there and started heading toward the apple tree just over the fence.

Right then a car turned onto Winchester from Collins. The bear stopped, turned and started back down Winchester. The car came around the corner of Winchester, the bear spotted the car, the car spotted the bear, the bear started running, the car followed it, and the bear ran off to the right near the end of Winchester. The car stopped, backed up and turned as if looking for the bear for a few seconds. The car then turned and went down Frontier Rd. About one minute later the bear came back out and also went down Frontier Rd.

We just wanted to let people know, at least one bear is around this Cache Creek area looking for food.

Les and Debi Alexander
